no for some strange reason no mater what video i try to play in media center it craps out with an error - so far i have tested avi (xvid) and mkv(x264) and it complains that it cant open the files, yet media player on its own can, now i have ffdshow installed, could it be because its in x86 folder that its kicking up, or just vista being a tit

yet it uses media player as the backend and thats using them ok, there is a ffdshow 64bit package but its not been tested :(

it doesn't use media player as the backend. If it did it'd use your codecs :)

Media player is 32 bit so that it can use existing codecs.
